The projected fourth and two sixths as compensatory picks in addition to our own seven picks and Baltimore's second sets us up nicely for next year's draft.

It's all part of a plan Roseman alluded to earlier in the offseason of garnering picks to help ease the coming cap issues when Wentz gets paid.

Gowton can project all that he wants to but nobody understands how the league comes up with those picks. I don't think that Howie even knows for certain but I'm sure that he's trying to get us in good position. It's some mystery formula that only the league knows because there are only 32 of them to go around.

The sites predicting them are very accurate. I think over the cap has a good projecting them.

I think that I read somewhere that it's salary based whatever that means. How would you figure a guy like Bennett who got a $1million salary but some kind of $6million bonus? I also read someplace where the Jets were expecting 3 picks but only got 1. It's looking like we should do pretty good and I know that Howie is counting on it though. He's so good at that stuff that I'm sure we'll do fine as you point out. I'm not so sure Gowton has it nailed though (btw I think he's the best ever covering the Eagles).

Check out the table to the right.

It was us getting a 4th and two 6ths.

If you click on the methodology link and the cancellation chart, you see how they arrive at their projections.

If they are right, we would have our 7 picks, plus the 2nd we got for our trade out of the first round this year, plus three comp picks, or 11 total.

Not sure how useful that over flow will be to our talented roster but we'll see.

Ammunition for moving up in the draft.

Every year NE has some. Many times they have a couple of first round picks instead of one too. No matter what they do they usually come up smelling like roses. Of course I have to hear about it up here on a daily basis. At least this year I have ammo to fire back at them! Of course their answer now is "we've" got 5 of them". Screw them.

We're pretty set for the foreseeable future. A shitload of picks next year, and not a whole hell of a lot of key guys becoming free agents. On top of that, a couple of guys who are set to become FAs have a chance to prove themselves this year and get paid (Darby, Ajayi, etc.). Others such as Graham and Hicks may be extended or not, but pretty much every position can be replaced in the draft or signing other FAs.

Howie has earned his kudos for sure.
